Several months ago, I reported that filmmaker Zachary Miller planned to create a short film (under 30 minutes in length) about Beauford. I am pleased to bring you this update on the project.
Miller's film, which remains unedited and untitled as of today, will be showcased in the Short Film Corner at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival. Showing the film here will increase its chances of being picked up by other international festivals. It will benefit from the use of the label "Short Film Corner," which reinforces its potential and increase its chances of professional distribution.
As part of the Short Film Corner, the film about Beauford will not be in the Short Film Competition. It will be referenced on www.shortfilmcorner.com and in the Catalogue du Court, which is published by the Cannes Film Festival.
The dates for this year's festival and the Short Film Corner are May 16-27, 2012.
